Solutions Architect, (CMS Platform)


Solutions Architect, (CMS Platform)

San Francisco | California | United States

We're looking for a motivated, hands-on, and analytical Solutions Architect to help define the future of our web CMS platform. This role is perfect for someone who enjoys engineering and design problems and the idea of not only building a compelling vision for our CMS platform but also designing the systems for ‘how we scale our impact and tell our story’ across Pinterest. We're looking for a person who has experience building multisite and CMS web applications to get why that’s not trivial — ideally this is not your first time doing this. You will play a huge role in the evolution and success of not just our many content-driven websites, but Pinterest’s go-to-market strategy and ability to scale our mission.  

What you’ll do:

  • Guide and drive technical application design for Pinterest’s next generation CMS web platform with stakeholders across the company
  • Lead planning and platform migrations across several internal teams, while building features and capabilities that enable new use cases, and drive build-vs-buy decisions
  • Plan and execute large projects for various business units, iterate and support existing CMS applications and features, and provide a base level of accountability for site availability
  • Define a product vision and then develop a short- and long-term roadmap for internal teams and external partners to be able to execute, and serve as subject matter expert, hands-on contributor, and thought leader

What we’re looking for:

  • BS in a technical discipline or equivalent experience (4+ years in a technical role) and 2+ years experience in a technology management role (engineering manager, product manager, program manager or technical consulting engagement manager)
  • 5+ years developing CMS web applications; defining and scoping a technical solution for large scale CMS and web application projects; ability to perform complex software development tasks including custom application development using Drupal, WordPress, other CMS technologies, and/or open-source technologies; strong familiarity with front-end frameworks like React and Node, security and performance optimizations, Unix/Linux server administration, etc.
  • Strong technical breadth and judgment. You have the ability to quickly ramp up and go deep on a range of technologies and are able to identify technical risks and tradeoffs
  • Comfort with a fast-changing environment and ability to manage ambiguity. You can identify and prioritize opportunities, and aligning long-term vision with iterative execution
  • Experience working in a consulting or agency environment with direct interaction with enterprise level clients and executive stakeholders
